The OAKS

"An outstanding secondary teaching training provider" (ofsted 2016)

Season’s Greetings to OAKS Subject Mentors!

I think we can all agree that none of us has ever experienced a term like this one. It has been a difficult term to be a teacher and a difficult year to train to teach. However, we have been overwhelmed by your flexibility and generosity, both in terms of time for your trainees and in terms of our team visits to schools, live and online alike. The OAKS Team would like to thank you for continuing your vital work within teacher training under these circumstances. You are extraordinary teachers in extraordinary times! THANK YOU.

Date for your Diary

The next Subject Mentor Forum will be a live online event on Thursday 28th January 2021 at 5pm via Teams. An agenda and the meeting link will be emailed to you closer to the time. If you have any items to suggest for the agenda, please do email me ( [email protected]) or our administrators.
